    Thanks, some don't like the seat post. It might not "look" right but it reduces the harshness from the roads.

    Love this, seat post is slightly strange but it has a purpose so thats all that matters.
  • A beautiful bike indeed. My local roads are pretty much beaten up too but not to a point to justify a Cobbler Gobbler Seat post. People seem to love it tho..

    It pissess me off that my market got the disk brakes only for the fully assembled Sworks Roubaix,otherwise I would have probably considered to sell my 2012 Roubaix Expert to make funds for one but disk brakes are fugly. And on top of that they're Sram,so all Specialized dealers have been warned not to sell everything Sram disk brakes for road.. :roll:

    What's not to like (except the seat post!)? One of the nicest Specialized I have seen. There is a bright orange S-Works Venge in my LBS but I prefer the more muted tones of this.

    looks beautiful to me!
    really nice
    is this a 52/54?
  • DHA987SDHA987S Posts: 284
    Thanks for the positive comments.

    It's a 54 Baracus, in reality there isn't a huge toptube difference between the two sizes, the stack is the largest difference in geometry.
  • Nice one. I was looking at the disc one yesterday in the LBS. Really quite ugly. I think you have got a better bike.
  • I'm quite a Spesh fan so a bit biased but lovely bike.
